If there is, I'm surprised no one has put any up by now. But I'm sure there would be something out there that would qualify.

There were some real gems in the early days of Aussie TV, but even less 1950s/1960s Aussie TV survives than British TV from the same period. Not sure of the copyright status.

Canada....the CBC for the longest time offered classic clips, even whole shows on their website. Even some old time Canadian radio shows. Havent been to their site for awhile so I don't know if any are still there but interesting CBC it seems doesn't really care about copyrights as for the longest time a ton of their stuff does make it to You Tube. I haven't heard of any old CBC clips getting yanked.

I have also heard that Toronto's CITY-TV is quite liberal as well when it comes to the posting of their stuff online

Now Canada's other networks like CTV and Global...thats questionable. Seems they are picky about their shows getting upload BUT not their news. Considering that CTV ( and CBC ), their news looks the same in any city ( same set, same music, same this, same that..only their anchors are different ) like it would make a difference anyway.

Speaking of Canadian TV, I absolutely love the early 1970s sci-fi show The Starlost with Keir Dullea. The entire series is now available on DVD from VCI, fortunately.

As for radio, in the late 60s/early 70s when living in Pittsburgh PA, I listened to a late night show from CFRB, 1010 AM in Toronto, called The Owl's Nest hosted by the late Wayne Van Exan. A great listenng experience. Wish I still had my old tapes of the shows.

And I love Canadian sci-fi movies. I even worked on one. ;)
